    Of all the graduates of West Point from the class of !853, he achieved the highest command position, but, not the highest rank.

    bonus:
    This Union officer fought at Glorieta Pass, had once been expelled from a state legislature for striking another member, was ordered by General N.P. Banks to "correct the evil" of stragglers seizing commissary supplies, and died in a confrontation in which he told his assailant, "Shoot and be dam-ed!"

    Who was he?
